CFP: Yesterday the debate schedules leading up to the October 21 Canadian Federal Election were announced. In addition to when, the names of the moderators of the debates have also been released. And it’s not a pretty picture. (CBC, Aug. 20)
The English language debate will take place on October 7. And there will be not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE moderators. These moderators are with CBC, CTV, Global, the Toronto Star and Huff Post. All left wing organizations. And most of them have been paid off by the governing Liberals. The thought of having a debate host such as Rex Murphy or someone from the Sun Media who at least can be objective, never crossed the mind of the organizers. Even worse, it might have crossed their minds and was discarded.
Taking part in the debate will be the leaders of the Liberal Party of Canada, the Conservative Party of Canada, the NDP, the Green Party and the Bloc Quebecois. Maxime Bernier, the leader of the newly formed Peoples Party of Canada, has been excluded for not meeting the debate criteria the elites set down. If nothing else, Bernier’s exclusion illustrates how much Canadian voters, real ordinary people, don’t matter. The Green Party has been around since the 1980s and currently has about 18,000 members. The PPC on the other hand, created in late 2018, has 40,000 members. That doesn’t matter. more
